Tawa Maachli

This a simple fish recipe which can be served as a side dish. Any fish of your choice can be used. I have used about 1 kg Rupchand / Indian Piranha Fish here. I prefer to use coconut oil as it gives a flavour and enhances the aroma while cooking. 

For Marnation 
1 whole medium size Fish cleaned
1 tbsp Garlic paste
1 tsp Kashmiri Chilli powder
1 tsp Spicy Chilli powder
1 tsp Turmeric powder 
2  tbsp of Kitchen king masala or any Fish Masala
Salt to taste 
2 tsp Tamarind paste
2 to 3 tbsp Water 
1 tbsp Oil 

Take a small bowl. Add the garlic paste, Kashmiri chilli, spicy chilli, turmeric powder, Kitchen king masala, tamarind paste, water and oil. Mix all the ingredients together. Apply the masala paste on the fish. Keep it aside for 1 to 2 hours. 

For the Tawa Maachli
Marinated Fish
3 to 4 tbsp Oil
Some Curry leaves 

Take a rectangular skillet. Add oil. Let it heat. Add the curry leaves and let it sauté for few seconds. Add the marinated fish. On a medium low flame cook the fish on both the sides till done. Serve it hot with sliced tomato, cucumber and onions.
